Residential Care offers personalized service, lodging, meals and assistance with daily living activities to groups of persons who are in need. It can be deemed a home away from home, where the adults who reside there, if some of them are well enough; they can also be visiting residents and are able to participate in everyday activities, whilst they can make choices for themselves.

This relationship is a special one as the families look forward to seeing their loved ones and they expect to see that the care staff have a good relationship with their loves ones.

Shingler, expresses the articles point of view by stating details relating to a controversial bill passed in Quebec recently that targets certain ethnicities groups. Throughout, my essay I will be discussing the issues in the article as to why it relates to discriminatory issues in Canada.

The elderlies are people who have enough problems and things to worry about in their life’s and would not like to have more, putting up with us volunteers. The Valley Grande Manor is at 1212 South Bridge Avenue Weslaco, TX it is a place for elderly who have no family or anybody else to take care of them. I started to volunteer there for my class English 1302, as a project for my future, to gather data on how these nurses take care of them. When I first applied to volunteer they were so many elderly it remind me of many horror movies because it was wheelchairs, needles, and a big empty old cafeteria that was clean, but not remodeled. It was not comfortable until I talked to this man sitting alone before entering the main building of the nursing
The Amedisys Hospice service that I work for is special, loving, kind and caring; which we provide comfort and support for our patients, which are facing life- limiting illnesses for each family member and loved ones.

Examples from my personal experience within my family were provided to gain a better understanding of the application of each approach to family care. While one approach is not better than another, each approach is situational. It is important as a nurse to interview the patient and family to gather an understanding of their culture, needs, and expectations. The nurse should then assess the entire situation and plan appropriate interventions that would best fit the family and situation that is presented. This allows for a higher quality of care, better outcomes, and increased compliance to support the well-being of the
Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). Description of Theories
Interviewing families provides the nurse with information that can help the patient and their family manage chronic illness. By asking the family questions, the nurse can gain an increased understanding and appreciation of the illness impact on the family and the family’s concerns and hopefully help soften suffering and encourage hope and healing (Wright & Leahey, 2013). Following the conclusion of the interview, the nurse can assess the success of the interview and look for opportunities to improve the next family interaction. This is the fifth installment of the family assessment of two sisters, J.A. and R.C. This final paper will discuss the personal and professional impact that this family interview process had on the interviewer and discuss any opportunities that may have been conducted differently.
